About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Menu For Hope 4

It's that time of the year, just as we are contemplating our Christmas dinners, when some people out there, families with children included, have no idea exactly where their next meal is coming from. The indefatigable Pim from Chez Pim felt this was an untenable situation and that perhaps us folk that blogged about food, might step up to the plate and help remedy the situation in some way.

Here at At My Table, I always want to feed anyone who comes to visit and I know that you, dear reader, in some way, feel the same, no one should go hungry. So together we can do something to help. I've asked people that I know to help with prizes, that you, for the sum of US$10 each, can purchase for a chance to win AND help to put food on the table of folk who might otherwise miss out. That's win, win.

First up is the amazing prize of dinner for two, with matching wines, worth $400, at Robin Wickens' Interlude restaurant. This is cutting edge food to surprise and delight the senses; eleven courses that will explore both modern and traditional techniques, which will take your breath away. This is a dining experience that everyone should try at least once. You can check out what last year's winner, Anna from Morsels & Musings had to say about her prize. Prize code AP13.

Next up is a $100 voucher from a friend to this blog, Prince Wine Store. I never tire of writing about the wonderful wines and wine tastings this store puts on. If you are seriously into wine or just starting out, this is a must visit wine shop, where you are able to purchase wines from any wine region of note, anywhere in the world. All the staff are super friendly and have extensive experience with the wines in stock and will guide you to the most amazing bottles that will suit not just the food you wish to serve, but also your budget. The voucher will be sent to the prize winner, who can visit online or in person, but must organize to either pick up the wine/wines, or pay for their delivery. Prize code AP12.

So what to do next? You need to visit Grab Your Fork for a complete list of prizes for the Asia/Pacific region, then head over to First Giving to purchase your tickets and register the codes for whatever prizes you are bidding for. You can bid as many times as you want, or you can mix it up and bid for more than one prize, just remember it's US$10 per pick. Raffle tickets can be purchased from Dec 10-21, 2007 Pacific-Standard Time. The prize winners will be announced on Chez Pim's blog mid January.

The codes once again for At My Table prizes are: Interlude AP13, Prince Wine Store AP12.

Okay, what are you waiting for? Off you go, together we can feed the hungry.
